Call for Joint Panels with ACCUTE for Congress 2020 at Western University

We are excited to begin planning ACCUTE 2020, which will be held at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, hosted by Western University in London, Ontario, from May 30-June 5, 2020. Attached is our Call for Panels (also available on our website), which we ask you to forward to your association members who may be interested in proposing a panel for our conference. The deadline to submit a Member-Organized or Joint-Sponsored panel proposal is September 1, 2019. The CFPs for accepted panels will be publicized to the ACCUTE membership in late September with a deadline for submissions of November 15, 2019.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

Best wishes,
Vicky

Joint Panels

Jointly-organized panels with ACCUTE (which often follow the conventional three- or four-paper format, but can take a variety of forms, including roundtables: see the list of possibilities under Member Organized Panels) are held at the ACCUTE conference but are co-sponsored by another association. They are initiated by an ACCUTE member who is also a member of the organization that jointly sponsors
the panel. They are intended to foster links between ACCUTE and other scholarly associations, whether
those associations regularly attend Congress or not. Of special interest to ACCUTE are those
organizations that address fields that have traditionally been under-represented at our conference, such
as American, Medieval, and Eighteenth-Century Studies, but other areas are welcome as well. While
ACCUTE welcomes panels that correspond with the annual Congress theme, any topic that reflects
ACCUTE’s mandates or the interests of its members will be considered.

(Please note: if you wish to host an ACCUTE-sponsored panel at another association’s conference, you should not send in a proposal as below. You should ask the organizers of the other association if they allow joint-sponsored panels. If they do, follow any process they have for proposals; as an ACCUTE member, you may then request permission to have the panel listed as co-sponsored in the ACCUTE program. Such panels will not appear as CFPs for our conference, but can be advertised through the co- sponsoring association’s CFP, ACCUTE’s blog, and other CFP sites.)

Submitting a Joint-Sponsored Panel Proposal
If you would like to submit a panel proposal, email ACCUTE (info.accute@gmail.com) with the following information indicated clearly:
• The name of the co-sponsored association (e.g. NASSR, NAVSA, CCLA, etc.)
• The proposed panel title and format
• Your name, institution, and email address
• The text of the CFP to a maximum of 200 words
If accepted, your CFP will be publicized to the ACCUTE membership in September with a deadline for submissions of November 15, 2019. Submissions will come through the Online Proposal Submission Form on the ACCUTE website, and then be forwarded to panel organizers for vetting.

NEW! For ACCUTE 2020, organizers of joint-sponsored panels may choose to present a paper on their own panel. In such cases, the organizer should submit their individual paper proposal through the Online Proposal Submission Form.

Organizers of the joint-sponsored panels are responsible for choosing participants using the vetting or assessment protocols of the co-sponsoring association; ACCUTE does, however, ask that all submissions be vetted, and that organizers bear in mind the ACCUTE Vetting Guidelines. The organizers advise ACCUTE of the results, and ACCUTE sends out acceptances and rejections. Papers and panels are not subject to further vetting. If a joint-sponsored panel is selected for the ACCUTE program, the organizing member is expected to attend the ACCUTE conference to act as Panel Chair; if this is not possible, the co-sponsoring society should assign a Chair.

Ordinarily, each association is permitted one joint panel at ACCUTE, but two may be permitted if the response warrants.

Please note that anyone presenting a paper in a joint panel must be a member of either ACCUTE or the partner organization. To join ACCUTE, click here.
